What is the closest amp to this one, i absolutely love these amps, but they're SO expensive, and i really just need a combo.

So, what's the closes combo amp to the Dual Recti?

rectoverb? tremoverb? road king combo?


EDIT: f-series, if you can find one, might be worth a look.

I'll have to put the Classic T models on my to-try list. Shame the finish options there are Anachronism Gold, Nuclear Waste and Aged Clown, because in principle the plaintop is right up my alley.

isn't the road king more expensive? not sure about the first two amps.

i've never played through a dual rec, but i wouldn't call my f-30 br00talz, like what is usually said about the dual rec.
not sure about f-50 or f-100 though. keep in mind they are of different tubes.

Try an F-series or DC. The 50W ones use 6L6 tubes which are a little tighter and more commonly associated with the recto sound. However I'd consider the 30W ones simply because you'll be able to crank them a little more - my 50W Dual Caliber sounds quite sterile until you get it past 3 or 4, and that's far too loud for many pubs and clubs.

yeah, probably. subtract the cost of the cab needed for the DR, though, and they might be a little cheaper...

i've read somewhere in reviews people use this as a cheap alternative to rectifiers.
tube amp + MT-2 keeley mod "twilight zone".
not sure if it's good myself though.

I hear a lot about the B-52 AT amps being "poor man's rectos" but as they're so cheap I wouldn't really expect them to do a great job of imitating that sound.... How much are the Randall MTS amps? I'm pretty sure they have a Rectifier-alike module. I have a feeling they're incredibly expensive though.

I really don't play metal, some metal, but not like super heavy death br00talz metal.

But my favorite band uses a Dual rectifier, and i've always known them to be super expensive, so i was wondering if there were any combos that were close i could try out.

Are there any websites that sell Mesa Boogie, i can't find any. MF and GC don't, is there another sight.

Or, really, can somebody tell me how much the f-30 costs used?

bought mine new, with 1100USD (converted). but it's japan so it's expensive than the states. i think 700-800 bucks can get you a used one. personally wouldn't suggest it as an alternative for rectifiers though.

Mesa Boogie's Arent sold online as far as I know new. Handbuilt so even going to a local music store can be tricky to order them. Bugera maybe and the Mesa express is one of my favorites.

If you truly want a Dual Rectifier, honestly, save for a recto-verb combo.

Or really hold on to the money and save for the real-deal. There may be imitations, but you'll soon grow out of them and wish you still had that $800 you spent on it to put towards the real-deal.

i didn't think the randall recto model was all that good, to be honest. They're dear here, but i think they're more sensibly priced in the states (like most things )...

Honestly I think the Peavey XXX and JSX are some good Rectifierish amps. Try one out they are not quite as versatile, but the tones are similar and are very good. IMO

actually the JSX is one of the most versatile amps out from peavey, and if EQ'd right, can do metal very well,...although it is a tad bright

For under $600, a nice solid state amp, such as the Flextone would be as close to a recto as you can find.

For under $1000, you can find many great choices. The rectoverb would be my #1 choice, better cleans, and just as much gain as a normal recto. Possibly a Genz Benz el Diablo (used that is). B-52 gives a recto-ish sound.

It's really not going to kill you to save up for an amp you will love and want to keep for a long time. Not to mention if you buy an amp used, you can usually turn around and sell it for the same, if not a higher price than what you paid for it.

The Mesa F-30 can sell on ebay as low as $600, quite occasionally as well. I recommend the F-100 combo. Much better tone, and they usually sell for $100 more.

dual caliber series or the rectoverb series from Mesa.

I have a DC-10 and it can get brootal.
If for any reason you aren't getting enough gain, you can always use an OD.
